Horses & the hamptons

Stony Hill Stables was founded nearly 60 years ago and continues today as one of Long Island's premier horseback riding facilities. Through passionate and knowledgeable instructors and a meticulous staff, Stony Hill remains one of the top facilities for students and riders of all levels. With many years of experience and expertise under our belt, the team at Stony Hill is one of the top groups of trainers, grooms and managers in the Hamptons. 

Wick Hotchkiss is the second generation owner of Stony Hill Stables. She took over the business from her mother, Liz Hotchkiss, a USDF Silver Medalist, began in 1966. Wick's lifetime of experience in training and caring for upper-level and show quality horses is the greatest asset to a business of this calibur in the Hamptons. Wick is a USDF Gold Medalist, training numerous horses from the basics to Grand Prix dressage. 


Wick understands top-quality care, feed, grooming, and training are essential to producing top dressage, hunter, and jumper horses. She has devoted her life to mastering the training and care of elite horses and ponies.
